U2 Honor Bob Dylan In Utah

Irish rockers U2 marked Bob Dylan's birthday by paying tribute to the music legend at their gig in Utah on the day he turned 70.

The folk-rocker reached the milestone on Tuesday (May 24) and Bono's band honoured the veteran star during their concert at the Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The band played a rarely performed track from their 1998 album Rattle And Hum called Love Rescue Me, which was co-written by Dylan, and afterwards frontman Bono led the crowd in wishing many happy returns to the singer/songwriter.

Later in the show Bono also changed the words of the band's hit Where The Streets Have No Name to include extracts from some of Dylan's most famous tracks, including Times They Are A-Changin' and Blowin' In The Wind.
